The git-annex assistant creates a synchronised folder on each of your OSX and Linux computers, Android devices, removable drives, and cloud services. The contents of the folder are the same everywhere. It's very easy to use, and has all the power of git and git-annex.
The git-annex assistant comes as part of git-annex. See install to get it installed.
See the release notes for an overview of the status, and upgrade instructions.

The git-annex assistant was crowd funded on Kickstarter. Thanks to all my backers. This kickstarter is now closed, and there is a new home-made crowdfunding project to support the project for 2013-2014 here.
I blog about my work on git-annex and the assistant on a daily basis in this blog. Follow along!
